  • Metal vs Rear Tyre

    hi all

    my rear tyre recently had an encounter with a spikey piece of metal and it ended with a slow puncture. :cry: since i have very little experience in dealing with tyres entirely, i would like to know if it is as straight forward as bringing the bike down to a place like beaurepairs or bob janes, or do i need to go to a bike mech.

    I doubt you'll find bob janes or beaurepairs stock bike tyres.
    If you can... you MUST!

      Tyres for Bikes or "Insert similar motorcycle tyre retailer here" will likley be able to plug the hole for you at a small charge saving you the cost of a new tyre.

            can u tube some of them?
            i'd say most tyre places could get them in for you if you rang them.
            other than that, total motorcycle accessories in vic park have quite a few in stock.
            i'm assuming they fit them there too, but not 100% sure
            No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.

              Apparently this is true... I had one done a while ago at Yamaha in Midland and forgot about it... I was doing 150 when I remembered to slow down...

              So while they may be limited / rated at 110, they CAN go higher.

              I got new tyres VERY soon after that so I don't have to worry anymore.

              bman.

                They can only plug it if the puncture is centralised on the tyre, if it's too far to the edge the plug doesn't sit properly and wont work. The speed limit would be like the limit on recap car tyres, you're not supposed to get the tyres too hot. I dont think it has to do with centrivical force cause it's plugged from the inside.
